First off I usually hate to write reviews before a product is released, However after seeing this movie I have to do so. I will be coming back and reviewing the Blu Ray quality once it is released so do not worry! Now for the Movie....

This movie is about a young girl who is the victim of an internet predator, I seriously do not want to give anything about this movie out it hits HARD. The acting on both Clive Owens part and Liana Liberato are amazing. At times I wanted to cry for her and at others I could not even watch, Clive Owen brings so much realism to his role as a father it really got to me being a father and all I recommend this movie to any parent and teenager.

Child Predators come in all forms and I really think this movie could help parents recognize things going on around them. Teenagers could also learn from this movie, It is a serious problem and the movie did such a well job showing so.

EDIT
So I have watched the Blu Ray release now and Must say it is not what I was expecting, Do not get me wrong it was great just not as good as most modern blu ray releases. The Audio was good the video was a bit lacking the darks a bit uneven, only two extras that are movie related regardless, It is still a must own and I recommend it to all.

Forget what you know about the clichés of online predators. Forget what you've seen on shows like Dateline or Oprah. And I challenge you: Go ahead and go into this movie with a preconceived notion on its premise. This movie will baffle you on how complex the human spirit is. Yes, the girl meets a guy older than her from the Internet across the country. But no, it will be nothing of what you think the outcome will be.

Humans are incredibly complex and this honest film delves into the psychology of a functioning family like nothing I've seen. Once you think the movie will take one step deeper, it takes three. Once you believe one surprise is coming, three do. The acting: wonderful. The writing: (literally) breathtaking. The overall composition of the piece: riveting. Its brilliance should be watched by any boy or girl or father or mother or man or woman from ages 10 to dead. I guarantee that you will not be able to get the film out of your thoughts for at least a few days. You'll understand right when you put it into your DVD player.

Trust is one of those films that every one should see.
It sparks conversations long after you leave the theater about the internet, family values, relationships and how one incident can change the future. It is realistic and as a woman, I sat there going "yep- I can see myself doing that."

The acting is amazing... Clive Owen and Catherine Keener are at the top of their game, yet it is newcomer Liana Liberto who grabs your heart and doesn't let go.

EVERY parent needs to watch this film. I certainly agree - "its one if the year's BEST Films!"

I thought the movie as a whole was very well done. Liana and Clive Owen are in top form in this movie as they realistically portray their roles as daughter and father respectively. There were a few parts that were hard to watch and others where I found myself wanting to yell at the daughter for being naive enough to get into the car with him. On the other hand, I could somewhat identify with her, and I could understand her wanting to believe the things the predator told her. Yes, this is just a movie, but it definitely seems like it could be a real story. I found myself having a lot of the same reactions as the father did in being pissed off and wanting to kill the predator (lol), but thought that he could have done a better job in focusing less on killing predators and more on simply being there for his daughter. That tension and each of their reactions to the event were honest, and made for a believable story, however. As a whole, the movie is well done.

Painfully, unflinchingly honest movie about some of the many ways we damage each other. David Schwimmer's film never goes for the easy answer - everything is complicated, all the performances nuanced and credible.

I know that credits are negotiated by agents but Liana Liberato really deserves to be credited above the title with Clive Owen and Catherine Keener for her astonishingly complex performance.

I have read some of the other reviews and agree with some. Yes, the movie does drag on at parts, but the acting is good and the story is believable. If this were to happen in real life, it would likely 'drag on' like that too. I didn't find the movie pace slow though; I really have no patience for slow movies, and I was not bored at all during any of this.

I think it's a worthwhile rental. I like Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, and the actress who played the daughter was pretty good.

The movie is compelling family drama, current and intense in the destruction of family unit in this day and age of cyberspace predators. The daughter looks for approval in all the wrong places, parents are preoccupied. The ease in which the predator can attach to one who is searching is phenomenally frightening, and it never grows old that all parents/grandparents, older children present, have yet another film that they should see.

This is a remarkably well-made movie, with Oscar-caliber performances by Clive Owen as an affluent Chicago advertising executive and Liana Liberato as his teenage daughter who is seduced by an online predator. The subject matter may make this sound like an exploitative film or undesirable viewing; but this is one of the most valuable movies ever made about the effects of victimization, in large part because of the counseling scenes. Viola Davis plays the therapist, who attempts to guide a young girl away from the denial and confusion of seduction to acknowledge the painful reality that she was abused. There is not one false note among the actors, and many will be surprised that David Schwimmer, best known for his TV comedies, was the director of this masterful ensemble. In the DVD extras Davis credits Schwimmer with understanding an actor's process, and the evidence of this is abundantly clear on screen. Liberato needed to carry a large portion of this film at a young age, and she is simply astonishing in a role that any adult actor would have found daunting. Owen gives the finest performance of his career, and he should have been amply recognized for it in the 2010 awards season. Many people will shy away from this movie; but they should not: anyone who has ever felt victimized or felt helpless over a loved one's victimization will benefit from seeing this film.

This is a must-see movie for today, especially for parents of teen or pre-teen girls and boys. Clive Owen gives an inspired performance as a father outraged beyond his ability to control. It puts you through the paces of investigation and the greatest agony, facing the fact that your daughter thinks the predator loves her and she is special and her parents don't understand. Catherin Keener does an excellent job as a mother caught between her husband's rage and her daughter's outrageous behavior. This is how one "normal" American family worked out this problem...it's real and it's hard to watch at times, but so memorable. Clive Owen should have received recognition for this part, but Hollywood is too busy making action block-busters to care.

Before I rent a movie on Amazon, I always start by reading the negative reviews first to find out whether the movie will be worth my while or not. Some of the 1 star reviews of this movie say that they are mad because the girl is stupid and she almost asked for it, or the movie's end is not satisfying because justice is not served. Judging by my grown-up stories I immediately knew that this movie might be it! It might be realistic instead of artificially dramatic.

Watching the movie only confirmed my thoughts. It is realistic in several ways:

(1) Young girls are the subject of sexual fantasy, and the social media does not help (like in the movie, 12-16 year old models are often used to convey sexual messages in the fashion world). You will be surprised to see how many young girls have been improperly contacted by guys of all ages. When I was a teenager, I have received numerous invites, suggestions, and attempts by guys in their 30s and 40s, either online or in real. They are stealthy, and leave no trace, once they see the room for advance they will take it, and once they are firmly objected they try to make it look like you have misunderstood them.

(2)Teenagers, including virgin girls, have sexual desires. In a frightening way, little girls may derive excitement from guys' attention and attempts, and some of them give in. When I was a teenager, I was scared, confused but sometimes aroused when guys tried to make a move on me. I resisted the temptation but many didn't.

(3) When we were younger, many of us were indeed foolish, as many of us care too much about others than our own safety, that the illusion of love trumps good judgment and reasoning.

(4) A girl can be addicted to someone that listens to her, flatters her and seems to be caring and pretends to understand her instead of criticizing her. She would believe that was real love. We all have seen a few young girls who have crush on older guys for the same reason. Many of these stories causes no harm to anyone, but if the older guy takes advantage of girl's foolish crush, the story would be different.

(5) It is difficult to make someone admit that she or him is wrong, was stupid and made a bad judgment. It is more difficult to make a rebelling teenager to admit that she's been a fool, it can be extremely difficult to make someone who has just been victimized to realize that she caused her own tragedy. When the girl started talking back at her parents in the movie, my husband said to me that our kids would never talk to us like that, and I disagreed. It's part of human nature. People who grow out if it at young age are rare. It creates a challenge for all parents who want to prevent their kids from doing stupid things.

In sum. I say this movie is great and is a must see for parents. I makes me revisit my earlier age and think hard about how to deal with similar situations given that a lot of dangerous situation for young girls are due to the our own human nature. We have to understand it to address it, and denying it won't help.
